Congratulations to David Cooper for qualifying for the H-400 Award, as noted in the most recent copy of The Reflector.
This is a major accomplishment... Way to go!

Go Cooper. Hey, there are people who will tell you completing the Herschel 400 list is the hallmark of a serious observer. David's success is likely because he finally broke down and got a reflecting telescope.

Do want to say that the Astronomical League is a very interesting outfit, and TAC-AL has plenty of advantages for its members. We've only had 3 AL-COR's, (AL Coordinator, Alcor, get it? get it?). Mark Wagner set the group up, I ran it for years, and Joe Bob has continued to make it grow in his turn.

Try it, you'll like it.
